    Modern Day Heroes


    Today,August 30,2010,Filipinos celebrate National Heroes Day,in honor of those gallant men and women who fought for our country's freedom  and against oppression.Heroism evolved through time and you can see the emergence of a new breed of modern day heroes. A hero is not always famous or has super powers.My idea of a hero is someone who genuinely cares for the well-being of others without searching for fame or redemption.The people I call heroes today are the common people who dare to create an impact and making a difference by enriching the lives of total strangers for the sake of humanity.


    We can't all be heroes, because somebody has to sit on the curb and clap as they go by.
